Elderly woman jailed for feeding bears
An elderly woman was thrown in jail for her wild bear feeding habit.
Mary Musselman, an 81-year-old Florida woman, was warned multiple times by law enforcement that it wasn’t safe to feed wild bears.
She continued to leave out up to 20 bowls of dog food for the wild bears in her neighborhood, worried that they would starve without her help.
She’s now being held without bond until her March court date, which seems a bit extreme. Still, feeding wild animals can make them aggressive and dangerous.
Do you think this was an unfair arrest?

Come on, think of her age. Whats wrong with the cops? She deserves to do what ever she wants. Bears only attack when they feel threatened, I mean I watch them from a 4-wheeler they never bothered me.
Let her out!!! Come on, have a heart.

She was just trying to help them, but feeding bears is really dangerous and makes them more fearless around humans. Not good

Her intentions were good, but she needed to be more concerned with her own safety and that of the people in her neighborhood. What if the bears came there looking for even more food?

She should have left the bear alone in the first place.
